businessman-huey-gowdie.jpgshango-jackson.jpgSt. Andrew businessman Huey Gowdie, who was convicted last month with the death of his girlfriend's estranged husband, Shango Jackson, was sentenced to 10 years in prison before the Home Circuit Court Friday morning.

Gowdie, an event promoter, was charged for murder but convicted for manslaughter. At the trial, Gowdie contended that he was acting in self-defence when he shot Mr. Jackson at a house in Beverly Hills, St. Andrew.

But prosecutors led evidence that on July 12, 2012, Mr. Jackson went to his home where his estranged wife also resided. Shortly after his arrival, an argument developed between Mr. Jackson and a man who was at the residence.

Prosecutors say a call was made and Mr. Gowdie drove to the house on Shenstone Drive. He pulled his firearm and fatally shot Mr. Jackson during an argument.

In passing sentence, trial judge Evon Brown told Gowdie that he showed no remorse for the shooting death of Mr. Jackson, who was the Operations Manager for Sparkles Production.
